Having dim sum for breakfast is Malaysians’ all-time favourite thing to do in the morning. A perfect exhibit is Ipoh’s famous Foh San Dim Sum.
But unfortunately you won’t get that in Klang Valley, so it’s about exploring other dim sum restaurants. One place I visited was Jin Xuan Hong Kong Restaurant – located at Uptown Damansara.
There are other branches as well, but since Uptown is near my place – it’s obvious why I picked it.
Reaching there and seeing heaps of customers dining or waiting is something quite ordinary. Restaurants like this, especially good ones like Jin Xuan, should be a craze for many.
Just look at the waiting list…
Since there were no available tables, we had to wait for a while. Then given a piece of paper, sort of like a queue slip.
Yeap, that’s “leen” waiting at number 57. Bad handwriting though.
Waited for a bit and we finally got ourselves a table! Went in and woah, look… so many people.
Watch out for dim sum addicts!
Anyway, let’s proceed to our order that morning. Quite predictable actually – after all, dim sums will always be dim sums.
First, Thousand Year Egg & Pork Congee at RM4.00. Also known as a porridge.
Shrimp Rice Roll or simply known as chee cheong fun at RM4.80. Honestly, not worth it. You can get better ones at a way cheaper price out there.
The usual Siu Mai (Traditional Chinese Dumpling) dim sum at RM4.50.
Seaweed Roll dim sum at RM4.00.
Mixed Seafood Dumpling dim sum at RM4.50.
Prawn Dumpling dim sum, known as har gow in Chinese, at RM4.50.
Next up, fried stuff dim sums – my favourites of all! ;)
Fried Yam Pastry, or known as wu gok in Chinese, at RM4.00.
Fried Beancurd Roll at RM4.50. Always love it with the mayonnaise dip.
And lastly, the Golden Bun at RM3.60. Some may refer it as the Custard Bun too.
Well, actually it’s not as simple as munching it right away. Before you eat them, you gotta peel its outer skin first.
Once naked, give it a good sexy bite. Something ‘exciting’ will ensue!
Look! The custard cream inside the bun ‘ejaculated’! After that, you can either continue to suck it, lick its cream or just swallow the whole thing! ;)
Alright, overall the food was pretty good. The total bill was about RM45 (service charge included). But evidently, some of the prices could be a little pricey.
Nevertheless, that’s the price you gotta pay for dining at a well-established dim sum outlet like Jin Xuan Hong Kong right?
So yeah, sure – I’ll come again. ;)
